Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – Redwood City, CA – December 6, 2012
A typical day at work consisted of prioritizing tasks and conducting them in a timely manner. I learned great time management skills and interpersonal skills. Great co-workers. Hardest part of the job - not sure.
A company with great technology and poor business strategy
Scientist III (Current Employee) – Redwood City, CA – September 3, 2012
Codexis is a fun place to work at but pays below average and not that many growth opportunities. The management team is naive enough to believe that the R&D advancement through the technology platform will enable a solid product pipeline and sustainable growth. This assumption recently failed Codexis again. A serious revision of the business model is required. These days an adjustment of company size to a minimal cash burning rate is taking place as a consequence.
flat management style, great team and individuals, good work/life balance, great technology platform
poor compensation, lack of stability, aggressive timeline
